Roy Dotrice, who played Leopold Mozart in Best Picture Oscar victor Amadeus and won a Tony Award for Best Actor in A Moon for the Misbegotten, died today in London.

Dotrice died at his London home surrounded by family including his three daughters Karen, Michele and Yvette, grandchildren and great-godson, the family said in a statement to Independent.

Dotrice (pronounced doh-TREESE) began acting as a captive in a German prisoner of war camp during World War II.

Microsoft may have won its fight to protect overseas data from American search warrants, but it can't rest easy. The Justice Department filed a motion to take the case to the Supreme Court in June.

Reportedly, Dotrice was originally cast as Maester Pycelle but had to back out due to health issues.

In film, Dotrice is most known for his turn as Mozart's father in 1984's Oscar-winning biopic "Amadeus", as well as roles in "The Cutting Edge", "Tales from the Crypt", and "Hellboy II: The Golden Army". Julian Glover ultimately got that role.

Roy also voiced author George RR Martin's' A Song of Ice and Fire' audiobook collection in 2004, with his narration seeing him win a place in the Guinness World Record books after he voiced an astonishing 224 characters.

According to USA Today, Dotrice was also known for his long career in theater. Nearly a decade later Dotrice made a triumphant Broadway return in a revival of A Moon for the Misbegotten (2000), appearing alongside Gabriel Byrne and Cherry Jones. He was trained as a wireless operator and a gunner, and in 1942, his plane was shot down and he was captured, spending the last three years of the war as a prisoner of war in Germany.

The actor was predeceased by his wife of 60 years, Kay, in 2007.
